Blue Dragons: Bane of the Desert (Best of the Bestiary)

Huh. I thought these guys lived in the ocean. I guess even they don't want to mess with the Dragon Turtle. Can't blame them there. Blue Dragons, the natural enemy to Brass Dragons, are ferociously proud beasts. They won't stand for even the slightest insult and take great pleasure in establishing their dominance. However, don't… Continue reading Blue Dragons: Bane of the Desert (Best of the Bestiary)

Black Dragons: Kicking the Weak When They’re Up (Best of the Bestiary)

Thankfully, like the Dracolich before it, I don't need to talk about the design.… Continue reading Shadow Dragon: Technically Not a Dragon, I Guess

Dracolich: Even in Death (Best of the Bestiary)

We're finally getting into Dragons! This and the next monster aren't technically categorized as dragons, for some fucking reason, but that's beside the point! After over a year of doing this, we're finally talking about the monsters in the title of the game! In my and most people's experience, death tends to come after life. But the… Continue reading Dracolich: Even in Death (Best of the Bestiary)
